Raga Shankarabharanam

V R Dileep Kumar sings a composition of M D Ramanathan.

M D Ramanathan was not just a highly original musician of refined aesthetics, but also a composer of note. He composed about 300 songs, including kritis and tillanas; however, very few are in circulation, and many of them seem to be lost as far as the notation is concerned. He used to sing a few of them in his concerts, and the songs took on a particular sheen when he sang them in his unique expansive style. M D Ramanathan used the mudra, Varada Dasa, in his compositions, in a manner of paying homage to his guru, Tiger Varadachariar.
